Someone's about to get a whole lot of side-eye from Queen Elizabeth II.

For Season 2 of Feud, Ryan Murphy is tackling a royal rumble! On Tuesday, FX renewed Murphy's new anthology series for a 10-episode second season which will focus on the highly publicized and tempestuous relationship of Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana.

The first season of Feud was given an eight-episode order, and it focuses on the juicy rivalry between Bette Davis (Susan Sarandon) and Joan Crawford (Jessica Lange). The nascent mini-series will launch on March 5, 2017.

Feud: Charles and Diana is currently slated for a 2018 release. It will be penned by Murphy and Jon Robin Baitz (Brothers & Sisters, Katrina: American Crime Story). Prince Charles and Princess Diana's love-hate story has already been the subject of countless movies and TV adaptations, so it will be interesting to see Murphy's take on the controversial matter.

Murphy's decision to focus on Prince Charles and Princess Diana's marriage and divorce is rather bold, considering Netflix's breakout, royal family drama, The Crown, is expected to cover the same subject matter in 2018 as well. The Crown will introduce its own version of Princess Diana in Season 3, so this artistic adversarial collision will definitely be one to watch.

Which show will come out on top? Will the British royal family diss or support either series? Hit the comments to dish and discuss.
